1/3 Photos of Fiber Breakfast Cereal-Hot or Cold
Chef Tweaker's Note:
A friend got a version of this from a health food store (courtesy of the Comprehensive Medical Center in Bellevue, WA). It was entitled "Immune Breakfast", served cold and in addition to the listed ingredients also included 1 cup soy lecithin granules and 1 cup ground milk thistle. I omitted them and wanted to post this as I make it. Also it originally had oat bran but I knew that I would prefer the wheat. Naturally, everything was organic on the original recipe.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Prep: Grind almonds in a coffee grinder (makes if fine like flour) or in a food processor (leaves chunks which is good too). If you have whole flaxseed, then grind it as well. I was able to find cold-processed ground flaxseed from my local warehouse store and I keep it in the freezer.
- 2Combine all ingredients except the fruit. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for best quality.
- 3To serve COLD: The evening before, scoop 1/2 cup of the mixture into a bowl, add about 2 Tbs dried fruit and 1 cup of soymilk. Allow to sit overnight to soak up the liquid. If fresh fruit is available you may want to wait to add it (1/2 cup) just before serving. If you are in a hurry, you can try 30 minutes soaking time but if you can't soak overnight I recommend the HOT serving instead.
- 4To serve HOT: (I discovered this out of necessity. It tastes quite different from the cold version but it makes a nice change from regular oatmeal.).
- 5Scoop 1/2 cup of mixture into a microwaveable bowl and add 2 Tbs of dried fruit or 1/2 cup fresh fruit and 1 cup soymilk. Micro for 2 minutes. Stir, and micro for 1 minute more. Allow to cool slightly before eating.
- 6Note: If you have it available, you can try substituting chia seed for the flaxseed. Chia is very tiny -like the size of kiwi seeds- and it doesn't need to be ground for your body to digest it. It has a much higher nutritional footprint than flaxseed. Unfortunately it is about $15 a pound and I have never had enough on hand to put a whole cup into the mix. Instead I just left out the flax and put one tablespoon into the individual bowl.
- 7Note on nurtritional info: According to my calculations it contains 272 calories and 10 grams of fiber not counting the fruit. I guess it would depend on the amount in your soymilk etc.
